Review of 2015/16






Development and training


P.E. co-ordinator went on the annual P.E. conference at Newmarket Race Course. This highlighted the areas the school needed to address in order to become outstanding. 

Increasing provision


More children took part in lunch and after school clubs which resulted in increased participation across a variety of sports. We also had our most successful year, making two county finals and finishing second in three tournaments. 

Increasing Provision


Every pupil from years 3 and 4 received swimming lessons over the course of the year. 

Widening opportunities

£700 approx

We offered a range of academy competitions for all year groups. This gave every child in the school the opportunity to represent the school in a sports competition.

Raising attainment


6 Ipad's were bought for our KS2 teachers to use as an assessment tool in P.E. The video feedback gave pupils the opportunity to review and assess their work as they could see their performance. This had a positive impact on their progress. 

Widening opportunities


Year 6 were offered weekly yoga sessions. This had a positive impact on their learning as it improved their concentration, health and well-being. We also offered every child in the school the opportunity to take part in a micro-scooter activity.
